Kamal Haasan and team left for Los Angeles on Tuesday night, where the principal shooting of trilingual Sabash Naidu will start, and nearly 80 percent of the film will be shot there.
"Off to LA with 3 bound scripts. US team awaits with sighs of relief. Anymore delay would have ruined all plans. All is well ..for now ;-)," Kamal Haasan wrote on Twitter page on Tuesday.
The cast and crew of Sabash Naidu were supposed to start the shooting by the first week of May. The makers of the film had applied for the 60 days schedule. But the US Consulate reportedly rejected a few applications, as some names of the unit members had raised an issue, which was sorted out later. This made the makers of the film postpone the shooting, says a source.
Directed by TK Rajeev Kumar, the film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Shruti Haasan and Brahmanandam. In the film, Shruti will play Haasan's daughter, while Akshara will assist Rajeev Kumar and the film has music by maestro Ilaiyaraja.
The film, which is slated for release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, will hit the screens on December 1.
